    if you users are checking mail on the defautl box ..tell them to make a separate box with a real name like mail@domain.com , login that way. Make separate forwarders for any aliases you need and point those to that box.

    set the default box to :fail:

    If the spams are headed directly to specific email boxes then your only colution is one or all of the following.

    Personally I use the RBL's built-in to exim config manager. They will block on average 80% of all incoming emails on a average server of 100 domains. the other 20% that get through you can use spamassassin (built-in) and then thye rest could be filtering on the user level.

    I would have to say that rbls do wonders and setting default boxes to :fail: so they won't accept anything@allyourdomain

    good luck.

    I would suggest upgrading to version 11, enabling global SpamAssassin and setting server not to accept emails with spam ratio more than 10-12.5.
